Is life a natural conspiracy?
No major publication has linked the anthropic principle to chemistry and biology since 1913.
Ushering in a new era, biochemist Fazale Rana fearlessly pushes the boundaries of the anthropic principle beyond cosmology. In his groundbreaking book Fit for a Purpose, Rana invites the reader to discover the world of chemical and biochemical fine-tuning as he takes on this challenging question:
If the universe is fit for life, and biochemical systems are fit for their role in life, is it possible that everything is “fit for a purpose”?
About the Author
As a graduate student studying biochemistry, I was captivated by the cell’s complexity, elegance, and sophistication. The inadequacy of evolutionary scenarios to account for life’s origin compelled me to conclude that life must come from a Creator. Reading through the Sermon on the Mount convinced me that Jesus really was who Christians claimed him to be: Lord and Savior. Still, encouraging others to join me in following Christ wasn’t important to me—until my father died. His death changed that. I felt the most important thing I could do as a scientist was to show Christians and non-Christians alike the powerful scientific evidence for God’s existence and for the reliability of the Bible.
